Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Just after the "tribal switch" in the previous episode, law student Brooke Struck was voted out of the Guatemalan jungle. The main intrigue this week involves the hostility between the bullying Judd Sergeant IV and short-tempered Margaret Bobonich over loyalty issues. Meanwhile, the cocksure Blake Towsley, he of the long-winded anecdotes about his lavish lifestyle, has been sarcastically labeled "The Golden Boy" by the other castaways. This episode's Reward Challenge involves cutting through various barriers with knives and machetes, then operating a rope-pully and a cart. In comparision, the Immunity Challenge, catching balls in a net, is simplicity itself!
